Re: That was a long shift......

well done Steve, can't do with scum but can't post my thoughts here, F1 restarts his weekend so something to look forward to :D And it's quite a packed calendar for the next two months as well. Obviously we can't go to Silverstone this year but at least our tickets have already been rolled over to ...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Excellent as usual Barry, but how do you keep the dust off? There’s not a speck in sight!

Re: Somewhere in Yorkshire

I agree with the others - excellent work. Never be frightened to display your efforts on here, warts and all, constructive criticism is always a good thing.
For my part (and a favourite theme for me :D ) that depot is way too clean - you need to spill something on it. Preferably grime.

Keep it up.

Re: That was a long shift......

I do wish I were allowed to use a veterinary bolt gun at times like that. He was too ‘juiced up’ to feel anything but he may have a few bruises to show for it today. Just been told he’s been charged with theft and common assault but bailed until 15/7. Bit of a surprise as he has only just been relea...

Blimey Steve hope you are OK. Guess it goes with the job.
Yes thanks Brian, a bit sore that’s all. First time in four years that it’s happened - I must be getting slow. :D

That was a long shift......

Just finished giving statements to the police after I was thumped at work by an angry shoplifter.
Had to 'put him down' twice in the shop and again outside when he tried to resist arrest.
I do have a bit of a sore jaw though.

Re: Very quick delivery!

That’s not too shabby at all Barry. Trouble is, Hatton’s prioritise the dispatch of sales with the cheap option the last to go out - implies that they aren’t getting too many orders at present? I had a class 66 decoder arrive within two days last week so it’s not an isolated case. Sorry, I have my e...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

That box is perfect for that location - a hint of Swanage to my eye.
I like the idea of the signalman with the token - looking forward to seeing that.

Re: LOW GHYLL

Yes, it's the Ratio kit with some homemade corrugated sheets. There was one on the engine shed side but I took it off to make way for the telephone wires which have perished in the sunlight. I just need to remember where I put the bits do I can put them back. I need to replace the ladder as well - i...
